As if guaranteeing $425,000 worth of Aruba prize packages isn’t enough of an attraction, UltimateBet today announced that 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth will be playing in Sunday, August 5th’s 50-seat Aruba Satellite.

This $500+30 online event guarantees to pay out at least 50 Aruba prize packages worth $8,500 a piece. Each package includes a $5,000+500 buy-in to the 2007 Aruba Poker Classic and an additional $3,000 for travel and accommodations.

What’s more, the player who manages to bust Hellmuth in August 5th’s tournament will win $1,000.

With 12 satellites running daily, Texas Hold’em players can win their way to Sunday’s 50-Seat Aruba Satellite for as little as $15.

The 2007 Aruba Poker Classic is happening in Aruba from September 29th to October 6th. The weeklong tournament gives online poker players the chance to celebrate their successes at the tables with poker’s best professionals and compete for a piece of an estimated $2.5 million in prize money. In 2006, Devon Miller captured the title, taking home $774,960 in cash.

Matt Savage, a world-renowned tournament director, is on board to oversee UltimateBet’s signature weeklong tournament. For more information on the 2007 UltimateBet Aruba Poker Classic, visit
